United States Legal Research for L.L.M. Students

Overview of basic United States legal research. Originally written primarily for foreign law students, who are familiar with legal concepts but unfamiliar with U.S. legal materials, but useful also for the novice practitioner.


Lexis Advance/LexisNexis Academic, Westlaw and Bloomberg Law contain all reported Illinois court decisions.

Slip opinions from 1996 are also available at the official website of the Illinois courts.
